One Ocean Swim Day 21

There is another day of swimming. Sadly, I had a very restless sleep due to shoulder pain, overthinking, overheating and just being anxious about the early wake-up. It was the longest short night, and eventually, we work up at 3:15 am and set out to action. First was...

Rest Day

Technically today was a rest day, however, it wasn’t quite so. We spent some time doing a talk at Lilyfontein Adventure School, a wonderful public school focused on outdoor and adventure. It is very eco-minded and were so welcoming to us. We loved our time there,...

Day 20… We had a 5 am start as we let Chintsa and began our way to East London Harbour. The skippers had left earlier to get fuel, however we arrived before them. During our travels, we got to see a beautiful sunrise. I was feeling sore, and my head was not in a good...

Day 18 – was phenomenal! After a good night’s sleep, we headed to the beach for a sunrise shoot at the suspension bridge on Mazeppa beach. Met by a local tour guide, I did a quick interview before we set out to our start point. The launch was quite rough, with poor...

Day 15 arrived, and we had another slightly later start. We left our venue at 6 am, which was a welcomed change, as we had to pack everything again to move to our next destination at Coffee Bay. The challenge we have been facing in the Transkei is; trying to keep our...

One Ocean Swim Day 14

Day 14 started with another 4 am wakeup. We packed up the trailer and loaded the car as it was time to move to our next destination – Umdumbe. It was a challenge for John to negotiate the small turning area at the top of a very steep and windy driveway, but with...
